Returned from North Thailand

We arrived in Bangkok yesterday morning after an all-night drive down from the north. We had left our hotel, half-way up a mountain, in Mai Rim at eight in the morning to drive up to Mae Hong Son via Pai and then to drive south again, ending up in Bangkok. We turned east at Mae Sariang as it started to get dark, took the road to Hot, Li and then Thoen to get back on the main Bangkok road.

I will add bits about this trip as I get time, but some of the highlights were the Gecko Used Books shop in Chiang Mai, which must be the best in Thailand; the link is here, The Daraphirom Palace Museum in Mae Rim and the Thai-Japanese WW2 museum in Khun Yuam. There are few clickable pictures below.
